is in cairo for us on this saturday. jim, these morsi reforms were to be a test of his strength of the muslim brotherhood strength. how did they do? >> well, you're right. this was a crucial day for president morsi and his muslim brotherhood supporters. they needed a massive turnout today at that rally kind of to stem the momentum of the opposition, which, as we have reported, has seen hundreds of thousands of secular, moderate egyptians, leftists, christians all turning out in that iconic tahrir square on at least two occasions this past week alone. and which tonight, by the way, is continuing its ten-city occupation of the square. but today really did belong to morsi supporters. their show of support was very big in the tens of thousands, perhaps 100,000 or more outside cairo university and had the feeling of a political rally. waving flags, carrying banners and chanting slogans and some clashes between pro and anti-morsi groups, but up in alexa alexandria, not in cairo. overall, very peaceful. the muslim brotherhood much more focused on politics than on protests, craig. it wants to see tha

cairo. just how divided is -- right now? is there any common ground at all between the muslim brotherhood in egypt's secular and christian communities? >> the common ground seems to be really a difficult thing these days. we will have two demonstrations in cairo tomorrow. protesters will stay overnight in tahrir square. these of the leftist activists. on the other side, we see the muslim brotherhood on the western side of the line. this will be basically a simple tomorrow of how polarized the country is in this latest decision, and by pushing through this constitution, of course, divided the country even more. >> briefly, it could, the president has talked about a referendum on the constitution. could that end this crisis? >> it will probably not end the crisis because people have the choice to say yes to the constitution, or they can say no to the constitution. the president will continue to have this right, it is kind of a no-win situation for the liberals. >> thanks so very much. egypt's old constitution also gave islam a special role in society, so what is the difference b
